  • LETTER: Entertaining on the taxpayers dime

    It goes without saying that the current activities of our county judge has created a cloud of sadness that covers the legacy of our community statewide.  One would think that we are the laughing stock of the Commonwealth, but no one is laughing.

     If there is any taxpaying citizen in Spencer County that is not 100 percent angry, that person needs to be committed to an insane asylum.  I will refer to Judge Jenkins as Mr. Jenkins from this point in time because I can not fathom addressing him as judge.  He no longer deserves that distinction.

  • State auditor to examine KACo spending

    It was business as usual at Monday morning’s fiscal court meeting.

    No one breathed a word about last week’s Kentucky Association of Counties  credit card questions surrounding Spencer County Judge Executive David Jenkins.

    Here are simple tips--Don’t leave your dog in the sun for long periods of time, give the dog plenty of fresh, cool water and access to shade throughout the day, and never, ever, leave your dog in your car. 

  • FROM THE WORD: Pouring of the Spirit

    After Christ was raised into heaven, the first sermon preached on earth. Acts 2 tells us how Jesus’s disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and were speaking in tongues to every nation. They were telling these people in their own tongues the wonderful works of God. But some there accused them of being drunk. But Peter standing up with the eleven lifted up his voice and said unto them, “Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give heed to my words.
